- For a more classic look, many owners will opt for a 15-inch wheel but if more aggressive fitments are what you’re after you can fit wheels up to 18 inches in size and 7 inches in width without the need to alter your vehicle. Mk4 Golf Wheels
What size are golf alloys?
Many factory standard Mk7s will come with 18-inch wheels, though many owners opt to run smaller 17-inch wheels for winter or in areas where the road surface is poor.
How do I know what size alloys to buy?
To find out what the width of your wheels are take a look at wheel itself. Every alloy wheel should have the size on the tyre; you can find this on the outside or sometimes it is stamped on the inside of the alloys or the back of the spokes.
Will a 5×100 fit a 5×112?
5×112 and 5×100 is bolt pattern, an offset number would be +35 or -35. They won’t fit at all unless you get adapters.
Will Golf Mk4 wheels fit mk5?
No they’re 16″. Though the Polo ones are in the exact same stud pettern as the Mk4, so will bolt straight on. You can run adapters to run the Golf GTI alloys but I think NRMA wouldn’t like that either. Another option is to look for replicas.
Will any alloy fit my car?
Every vehicle has a compatible rim width range (not a fixed width). For example: Audi A3 2002 has an offset range between 6J and 8.5J, as long as the rim width is within that range, the alloy wheels will be fully compatible. The higher the offset is, then the further in the alloy wheel will sit on the vehicle.

Are premium or alloy wheels better?
Alloy wheels (meaning an alloy of Aluminum or Magnesium with other metals) are generally considered the “premium” choice versus steel due to significantly lower weight and greater rigidity at the expense of toughness.
What does 6.5 J mean on wheels?
When you’re looking into the sizing of alloys you’ll see it shown like this: 15 x 6.5J. The first half (15) is your wheel diameter, simple enough, while the second half (the 6.5J) is the wheel width. By width we mean the section between the mounting flanges on the wheel.
What does 8j mean on alloys?
The wheels width is usually written beside the flange shape marking – e.g: 7j, 7.5j, 8.0j. The width of the wheel is basically the area shown on the photo above and it is measured in inches. In other words, the bigger the number, the “thicker” your wheels are.
